The Association for Information Systems (AIS) has awarded Karin Väyrynen and Arto Lanamäki the AIS 2021 Impact Award. The award was given for the societal impact in studying technology regulation in the context of the Finnish taxi industry. The award ceremony was held in the annual International Conference on Information Systems (ICIS) in Austin TX in December 13, 2021. The chair of the award committee Dr. Tilo Böhmann noted: “When someone cites your work writing to the European Commission you can be pretty proud of that.” Väyrynen and Lanamäki have studied digital transformation in the Finnish taxi industry since 2017.
